  • Did you graduate from an accredited school?

  • When did you graduate and what degrees, diplomas or certificates do you hold?

  • Do you belong to any professional associations?

  • Do you regularly attend continuing education programs to keep your skills sharp?

  • Are you licensed in this State? (This is a legal requirement for human practitioners in Michigan)

  • Are you insured?

  • Do you have professional references I may contact?
